QUINCY – The Safe Kids Adams County and Quincy Medical Group pediatrics department are hosting a free Safe Kids Health Fair from 9 a.m. to noon June 12 in the QMG employee parking lot, 11th and Maine (across from QMG’s 1101 Maine building).

The Safe Kids Health Fair will provide activities to promote safety and health for kids in the area. The event features police officers, firefighters, bike safety, games and activities on topics such as health, dental hygiene, mental health, developmental milestones, sports medicine and literacy.

All children who attend can enter their names into a drawing for a bike, sponsored by State Farm Agent Bill Terlisner. A bike course will be set up for kids to learn safe ways to ride a bike. Families are encouraged to bring their children’s bikes to participate in the course. Bike helmets will be given away while supplies last.

“We want to keep kids safe and protected, and the fair provides helpful information to help them avoid injuries and accidents,” Safe Kids Adams County Coordinator Triena Larsen said in a release.

“We want to ensure all of our community’s kids are kept safe, and the fair offers so many interactive and fun booths for families to learn ways to lead healthy and safe lives,” said JoAnn Legg, QMG director of primary services in nursing.

People are asked to wear a mask to the fair, which will be moved to June 19 at the same time in the case of rain.
